Research by plant biologists at UC Berkeley and UC Davis shows that young sunflowers grow better when they track the sun’s daily motion from east to west across the sky, using an internal clock to help control their movement.
In southern Italy’s region of Apulia, the plant pathogen Xylella fastidiosa is threatening the famous, generations-old olive trees that attract tourists and provide income to the rural communities there.
We are deeply saddened to learn that CNR student Nicolas Leslie, who had been studying in Nice, France, as part of the campus's Study Abroad program, has been identified as among the 84 people killed in Thursday’s terrorist attack.
Three UC Berkeley students studying abroad in Nice, France, are known to have been injured in the Thursday terrorist attack there. A fourth student, Nicolas Leslie, a CNR junior, is still unaccounted for.
Professor Daniel Nomura has identified a natural molecular pathway that enables cells to burn off calories as heat rather than store them as fat. This raises the possibility of a new approach to treating and preventing obesity and diabetes.
A recent study led by CNR cooperative extension specialist Van Butsic used high resolution satellite imagery to conduct a systematic survey of cannabis production and to explore its potential ecological consequences.
Three current or former CNR students are listed in the UC Global Food Initiative's 30 Under 30 Awards, which highlight inspirational young leaders who are making a mark in tackling global food challenges.
Research at the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory highlights that while cities currently contribute to global climate change by emitting the majority of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, they could become the building blocks of sustainability.
Professor N. Louise Glass and postdoctoral fellow Jens Heller have found that fungi use different dialects to communicate. Understanding these dialects could help scientists learn more about fungi cooperation for both destructive and beneficial purposes.
